The double lettered phenomenon. BB, CC, DD… I promise we’re not talking bra sizes! When we, at The Amazing Blog, were sent the Dr. Brandt CC Mat, we were really excited to try it out after hearing so much about this type of cream, and it did not disappoint.
CC Mat is a new addition to Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More collection and is developed to treat, protect and mattify the skin, while leaving it feeling fresh throughout the day. The CC stands for Colour Correcting, meaning it covers skin imperfections and evens out the skin tone. With ingredients like hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E and C, it will moisture and brighten the skin, decrease pigmentation and decrease photo ageing on the long run.
It is an oil-free cream, specially targeted to oily/combination skins. It does a good job leaving the skin shine free throughout the day, even during these very humid days in London. The cream has a matte finish which is great for preventing that mid-afternoon oily shine on the t-zone. The coverage of the CC cream is light, so it does not feel heavy or cakey on the skin, making it perfect for that summer ‘no-make up look’.
As it contains SPF 30 PA +++, this is perfect for days at the beach, when you need protection from the sun, but want to enhance your skin while still looking natural. Whilst this cream is not the cheapest on the market, retailing at £34 from the Feel Unique website, it is really effective with an amazing finish leaving my skin looking beautiful. That, in my opinion, is well worth every penny.
